“Let it be that human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights, once and for all.”
The spouses watch. I posted each of these individually but I think they make an adorable set.
I didn’t think it was possible for Bill and Michelle to exceed my expectations but both managed to. I’m looking forward to President Obama this evening. Those are two tough acts to follow but I have a feeling he’s going to knock one out of the park tonight.
“Hillary, did you see my speech?”
“Yes, absolutely. Almost all of it.”

Hillary Clinton rejected — via a personal letter — Jason Segel’s offer to star in a movie with him, according to Politico.
This, obviously, is a great letter, but that font: It does not become a madame secretary.
“Every moment wasted looking back keeps us from moving forward. Life is too short, time is too precious, and the stakes are too high to dwell on what might have been.” -Hillary Clinton
Meryl Streep introduces Hillary Clinton at the Women in the World Summit:
I find a lot of similarities: We’re roughly the same age, we both have two brothers — mine are annoying — we both grew up in middle-class homes with spirited, big-hearted mothers who encouraged us to do something valuable and interesting with our lives. We both went from public high schools to distinguished women’s colleges. …We both went on to graduate school at Yale, which is where the two paths diverged in the wood.
Where Hillary aimed her life and where it landed was evident very early on. While I was a cheerleader, she was the president of the student government. Where I was the lead in all three musicals, people who know her tell me she should never be encouraged to sing. Regardless, she has turned out to be the voice of her generation. I’m an actress, and she is the real deal.
This is what you get when you play a world leader. But if you want a real world leader, and you’re really, really lucky, this is what you get.

Those lovebirds sure made something of themselves. First stop: Arkansas!
